Use containers to easily style your dashboard. Have your Corporate Identitiy propagate throughout your dashboards too. Easily synchronize the layout over multiple containers and fully customize your look. Drag the extension in your dashboard. Double click on the element to configure the layout. Select synchronise layout if needed and setup a custom dashboard layout in a minute.
On each tab, you can change the corresponding settings.
Using synchronize layout, multiple containers can be customized at once. Use presets to load and store all settings. To get inspired multiple themes are already included in the extension. In the section below we will discuss how to use themes and presets.
To emphasize the viz, add a tile as background. Set the border radius and color to your taste. Click on the color square to open the colorpicker and palette. You can even add a gradient by adding multiple colors. To remove the gradient, delete the other colors and use only one color. The type of gradient and angle can be set. With the slider you can set the crossover point of the gradient.
When you use borders in your corporate design, they can also be used in your tile. A border can be added to the tile in a few clicks. Use the slider to adjust the border thickness and change the color with the color picker.
Use the container to add titles to your dashboard. When synchronized, the layout of all titles will update accordingly. Add a custom title to your designs. You can change the font size, color and padding or set the alignment to left, center or right.
A clear description of your visual is of great value. Similar to the title, a caption can be added to the bottom of your container to maintain the same style throughout your dashboard.
To give depth to your dashboard, a shadow is of great use to elevate the tile. Give a premium look to your tile. Switch on or off the light and dark shadows. The displacement, blur and angle can be changed.
Adjust the background color by clicking on the color square. This way it matches your webpage and the background of your dashboard.
Containers can be used tiled but also floating, depending on your needs. They can be easily resized while remaining round corners. You can change colors and font sizes on the fly without the need to generate a new image and import it in Tableau.
